20 Reasons You Should Keep Those Silica Gel Packs, #17 Is A Life Saver.

You might think to yourself, "What is a silica gel bag?" We can guarantee that you've seen these tiny silicon dioxide bags in items which you've purchased. They come in everything from sealed packs of food or medicine to sealed packages you get your deliveries in. And you've probably been just as confused as us figuring out what exactly they do!

From a blind eye, they look pretty useless. It doesn't seem like they're doing anything in the sealed packages we receive them in and you always end up throwing them away. Well, stop trashing them and start collecting them! These little packets can actually come in handy and various situations.

#4. Water Damage
